I got home from rehearsal at 11:30 last night, and before turning in I made the mistake of going into the kitchen. There before my ravenous gaze was a large bag of Cheetos. After devouring 1/2 of the bag, I made myself put them away. The two foods I can't stop eating are Cheetos and popcorn.

It has nothing to do with hunger, I just can't put that junk down. :evil::bawling:

Popcorn. And if it's caramel corn, I can eat enough to go into a coma.

Plain Lays Stax chips! If I open a can, it's not over until I hit bottom... I am not this way about any other chip or snack food. I think they put something on those things other than salt...

And apple dumplings with ice cream.

It's not a food, but my thing is Coke (the stuff in the red and white cans and bottles). If I'm awake and can afford it, I probably have a Coke going somewhere closeby. Iced tea is a good backup. So maybe it's more about the caffeine than anything else. Never drank coffee.

Type 1 diabetic so all the good stuff is a no no.

Chips, love any chip. Ok maybe not the spicy kind but mostly all chips. Pepperettes are another favourite, expensive but soon yummy. Only 1 gram of carbs in each so 6 is ok lol

Pringles and Peanut M&Ms tend not to last around me. And Coke is my beverage of choice, although I tend to exist on Cherry Coke Zero due to an abundance of butt. I used to get three or four large Cokes (like the 44 oz. size) a week, but I've had to cut that way down.

Cheddar and sour cream potato chips...it's instant bag-be-gone. And anything resembling a plate of nachos or Texas Tots.

That being said, my most recent set of labs was NOT good, so for the sake of my family, and to save up enough for at least one private stock before I die, it's back to salads, fruits and lean proteins :(

There is a restaurant I frequent rather often for lunch. One, it gets me out of downtown and away from work, and two, they have the best wings - the sauce is called Killer (formerly Carribean Killer). A citrus-y habanero sauce. I always get an extra side of sauce to dip the wings in (and sometimes the homemade chips). But as much as I like them, that's not the obsession...

A couple weeks ago, I tried their chicken quesadilla. Instant addiction. It used to be my dilemma when I went was whether to order a sandwich with the wings - that only happened if I could have the leftover sandwich for dinner (it's too much to eat at once, even for my size). Now I also have to consider whether I want the chips or the quesadilla.

We got some New York strips at Costco. Man, they are GOOD!!!!! Having leftovers right now. I mean, even the microwaved, reheated steak is GOOD. I wish I had another 3 pounds of it to eat. And some wine. Although I think my employer might frown on wine with lunch in my office.

Flamin' Hot Chee-tos. They were once only available for a short time in MD. I was hooked, and I traveled for work. I would be in Chicago or LA buying 20-30 99 cent bags and stuffing them in my suitcase or FEDEXing them home.

Now they're finally available here, but they are hell on my blood sugar and my weight. I've since learned some moderation.

BBQ sauce is what I have for blood. Brisket, your king has arrived. Bow down and rejoice. :wave:

Crunchy Cheetos (puffed are for sissies), salted cashew pieces and halves (the greasier, the better), chased by Ferrero Rocher or Lindt Lindor balls. Shot gunned with a Stella on tap. Then a fresh, hot chocolate chip cookie. Or make it two and slam a block of vanilla ice cream between them. Damn, I'm hungry now. I need that big ribeye on Wednesday now. :cheers:

Before diabetes, I used to be a major abuser of Fritos and beandip, Whoppers, and Caramel Cremes. After diabetes, sugar free chocolates. After IBS, peanut butter. When you're a stress eater, you can always find a food for your jones.

I'm with Lloyd. CocaCola is my jones... I was drinking the caffeine free stuff for a long time, so it's not the caffeine. I don't do coffee or tea except very rarely.

The US bottlers switched to High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) quite a while ago, but the studies on HFCS have not been good. The Corn Lobby had ads that say your body cannot tell the difference between regular sugar and HFCS. It's a lie.

The studies clearly show that we metabolize HFCS differently and that it is more easily converted to belly fat. Add to that the fact that it does not work the same way in the satiety centers of your brain. That means you drink more than you would it it were sugar, thus componding the problem.

Then I found CocaCola bottled in Mexico with real sugar. I switched. I drink far less each day than I did with the HFCS variety. The down-side is it has caffeine. My other option is Sierra Mist - real sugar and no caffeine.

You just made me realize it's been WAY too long since I've had a good BBQ sandwich. There's a place here called Hap's, I used to eat there sometimes when I worked at the airport for FedEx. They operated out of a trailer in a mechanic's parking lot near the airport. Now they have a more proper restaurant, but the food is just as good.

Right on, man. There's so much misinformation out there, it's good to see someone has the facts. Fructose requires zero digestion to enter the bloodstream whereas sucrose is a compound that requires effort by your body to break down before it can be absorbed.

Trader Joe's has become my main grocery store, and when I go anyplace else, I'm always shocked at how hard it is to find food that isn't loaded with various chemicals and shelf stabilizers. Trader Joe's is able to stock many of the same items, only with their own store brand, without all the chemicals. True, a loaf of bread expires in 5 days instead of 3 weeks, so we put it in the freezer. Corn tortillas expire in 2-3 days, instead of 2 months, but they only have 3 ingredients instead of 16, 13 of which being hard to pronounce. You plan out your meals accordingly.

+1. My dad and I make venison jerky whenever we get a deer during hunting season, and it's tough not to eat piles of it in one sitting. Also, I got some great fresh apples at the farmers market yesterday, and I've had 3 since I got home today. Nothing like orchard fresh apples in the fall, especially living in Boston, good produce is hard to come by!

I once thought there was a food I could not put down. Diabetes and other health problems quickly disabused that notion. I used to love Caramel Creams, I'd eat them by the bag. If I did that now, I'd be going to the hospital. 10 years now, and I haven't had one. When it becomes an issue of life or death, you'll be surprised what you can give up.

Enjoy it while you can.
